KEEP THE HOSPITAL WHERE IT IS
1 ' "" •
ASIDE from considerations of simple humanity to the sick
poor, there are sound business reasons behind the proposi
tion to correct the bond issue for the proposed new city
and county hospital. At the former bond election small
attention was paid to the terms of the proposition. They suited
the" owners of property in the Mission, because there was behind
the proviso establishing the site of the bond built hospital on the
almshouse tract a promise that the present site would be turned
into a park. The promise did not amount to a great deal, inas
much as, having formally dedicated this lot to hospital uses, the
city could not legally hand it over to the park commission for
park purposes. Nor did the Mission people reflect that, even after
the great multitude of the city's sick poor had been • condemned
to the remote, foggy and windy tract where the almshouse is,
there would still be a demand for a hospital nearer to the center
of population, with the vacant Mission site the only available loca
tion. So they would have got a cheaper and poorer hospital for
a neighbor than if they had let well enough alone.
Under the outrageous conditions of management that have
made the city and county hospital a municipal shame there may
have been some ground for objection to its presence by the neigh
bors, if it were not for the fact that most of them bought their
property after the hospital was built and in operation. But popu
lar prejudice against a hospital as a neighbor has pretty much
passed away. The modern hospital is not a grewsome place to
die in, but a place to get well in — a place of perfect sanitation, set
amid trees and flowers in spacious grounds.
Again, there is no grading to be done on the present site,
which means that much more money to go into the building and
equipping of the new hospital. The success of the German hos
pital management in building a new hospital alongside of and
around an old one, without interrupting the operation of the latter,
has been sufficient to remove any objection on that score.
The people who fought in former years to have the hospital
removed have almost to a man revised their views. They now
realize that a building to cost several millions will enhance the
value of their property; they know that the days of hospital graft
are almost over, and that the up to date hospital which is to be
will be a worth while landmark in the Mission.
The supervisors have already set the machinery in motion
to continue the hospital on its present site, but they will need the
good will and co-operation of the people to accomplish this greatly
to be desired result. Complications have come because of the
sale ,of part of the hospital bonds. They will have to be legally
retired; the people will have to vote again upon the bond issue.
And this is a call to the people who are working for the
betterment of local conditions to vote for every measure that will
make the city and county hospital an institution to redound to
the municipal credit. To keep the hospital on its present site
will be a mercy to the unfortunate poor. There onght to be no
doubt about the outcome of the new bond proposition.
THE WRONG END OF A DOCTRINE
UNCLE SAM seems in a way to get more than his share of
the white man's burden. He is not content to mind his
own business, but must meddle in the affairs, of the black
and tan republics to the south to hold them in (the paths
of rectitude and decency. It is a dull day in Washington when
some one or other of these shifty commonwealths is hot in trouble
with its creditors. In the old^ days the creditor nation sent a gun
boat and levied on the customs, but Uncle Sam regards this as
an uncivilized process and he offers to get the money by more
peaceful although troublesome methods. Uncle Sam is a sort of
halfway admirer of the Drago doctrine which forbids the collec
tion of debt by force. It is a rule that commands enthusiastic
support from Turkey and Venezuela, but their reasons are quite
different from those that inspire Uncle Sam. They disapprove of
debt collections by any process.
But what are you to* do 'with a man ; like Castro, president
of Venezuela? Repudiation has become a habit with him. just
now he wants to break loose from the agreement of arbitration
arrived at in 1902 for the payment of Venezuelan debts. Castro
paid the claims of Great Britain, Germany and Italy, which block
aded his ports, but the other debts adjudged by arbitration he
now refuses to pay. These are the sums remaining due to the
several countries:
Belgium ..*. $2,180,000
France *.. 1,500,000
Mexico „ 530,000
United States 437,000
Spain .- 400,000
Holland r „ 412,000
Sweden $6,000
It appears to be expected of Uncle Sam to make Castro dig
up the money. The Drago doctrine is a form of international
luxury that only the rich can afford — that is to say, if you are
at the wrong end of the doctrine. But Castro would not keep
house for a minute without it. ', '^:S>- *
KICKING OUT OF DINAN IS DELAYED
NO other agerfcy than the, police commision can remove Chief
of Police Dinah. So rules the district court of appeal. The
present police commission not only would not oust Dinan
but would, if it could, raise him in rank and pay, multiply
him and make him more effective* for the particular kind of evil
EDITORIAL PAGE
which . he promotes. Thus it ought to be the first t business of
Mayor Taylor' to remove the Schmitz branded commissioners and
put in their places men who will not stand for the friend and
associate of thieves as the city's head thief catcher. \u0084
Dinan, like the commissioners who support him in his gross
abuse of the position he holds," is among the finest flowers of
Schmitzism. . ,He is not a shrewd or resourceful grafter. For
tunately for the community, he is a dull, - stupid, ignorant man.
He has not brains enough to make his lack of scruples and prin
ciple* as much of a menace to the public welfare as they would
be in the person of a capable rogue. Dinan consorts, by instinct
and by* choice, with crooks of the "Kid" Sullivan kidney, and-it
has already been explained in detail what and who "Kid" Sullivan
is — professional pickpocket, keeper of a deadfall which could not
exist without the protection of the chief of police whom the police
commission protects. As a policeman he is a joke. The newest
patrolman on the force mocks him, and may with impunity do it
to his face, for Dinan is too thick witted to know when he is
insulted. :
. The charges which: the \u25a0»• appeal court will not permit the
superior court to try include the protection of disreputable. resorts,
the moral shambles of Pacific street; use of his office to assist
Schmitz, on trial for a felony; abuse of his office in directing his
subordinates to' keep from the district attorney information that
might have helped to send Schmitz to prison. To. these might
have been added many other counts, principal among them direct
responsibility for the bloody streetcar riots of May ttetst. And
what, pray, will the police commission do with Dinan? It. will
not try him without compulsion/ and if it should do so it would
probably vote him as reward for these conspicuous services a few
more yards of gold braid.
Dinan, the accused, is the chattel of Schmitz, the convicted.
The city will never be rid of him until it is rid of the commis
sioners, who are even worse than Dinan, in that they license and
approve his wrong doing. Let us have a police commission that
will strip Dinan of the uniform he disgraces.

\u25a0Wright Replies to Pardee
Leroy A. Wright,, chairman of v tho
legislative committee on California
harbors, which committee was created
by the state legislature, has written a
letter, to Rufus P. Jennings, chairman
of the California Promotion committee,
in which .he takes exception to the
statements made • recently by former
Governor George C. Pardee relative to
harbor improvements. Wright's letter
Is as follows: f .
. San Diego, Cal., Aug. 13. 1807.
Rufus P. Jennings Esq., Chairman Call
. fornia Promotion committee, San
Francisco, Cal. "
Dear Mr. Jennings: Tour recent fa
vor Informing me , that ex-Governor
I George C. Pardee Is attempting to dis
credit the work of the legislative har
bor committee has been carefully
considered. \u25a0 As the ultimate success
of the work of this commission de
pends largely upon the degree of public
confidence it enjoys, the attack made
upon its integrity is much to be re
gretted.- - - •
No one knows better than yourself
that this movement for the improve
ment of our harbors upon a compre
hensive plan Is wholly and unre
servedly in the interests of the entire
state. You also know how utterly
false is the charge that the purpose of
the commission is to give to any cor
poration; \u0084 railroad , or otherwise, the
control of any or all of the harbors, or
to perpetuate any control that any
railroad /company or companies may
now -.have. On f the contrary, the'pur
pose of the commission is to .make
ocean commerce as free from all bur
dens as possible. The harbors of the
stale must be: made open doors to all
shipping, and existing railroads and
those which may be constructed in the
future must be given every reasonable
facility In order that their cars may
meet the ships. Care will be taken to
reserve terminal facilities at all of tho
harbors of the state for new trans
continental railroads, which In the very
near future will be bidding- for Tthelr
share of the ocean commerce. ° To con
nive at defeating such a result j would
be a great 'crime against the 'progress
and development of California.
The committee's report, together with
its recommendations, will be made pub
lic .sufficiently in advance of the next
session of « the legislature to permit a
thorough discussion of fits merits and
demerits. Instead of condemning the
work of the commission > critics should
\u25a0give their time and energy toward di
recting, its investigations along proper
lines and in avoiding things they fear.
The work is of sufficient importance to
command the united efforts of 'every
3ectlon and influence in the state.:
I have confidence in the good Judg
ment of Dr. Pardee and believe if you
will give ; him the history: of the or
ganization of this committee he. will
see the error into which he has fallen
and dowhat he can to correct the Im
pressions he has caused to: be pub
lished.' ;.-, .
As for myself, I am too busy attend
ing to i the details of the work Intrust
ed to the committee and to niyVown
private affairs to j enter ihto'a news
paper controversy concerning a charge
which is as. false "as; false can be. ,
; The work ':. of : the commission ' was

Correct History dty kmmn to all as T€legra ph hiu derirei
Of Telegraph HilL fa name f rom the fact that early in IB4J
Sweeny & Baugh erected upon it a small building with a flag pole on th«
roof, from which were displayed signals announcing, by a combination cl
long black wooden arms, the sighting of .vessels from the station on Point
Lobos. When the signal was put up at the outer station it was made out bj
means of a powerful glass and repeated on Telegraph hill. This method oi
telegraphing was in vogue until September 22, 1853, when the first electrii
telegraph line in California was established between the two points named
The. signal system is entitled to be known as the first wireless telegraph it
the Golden State.
In the early days Telegraph hill was beautiful, not marred as it now i^
for then there was an easy slope on the east side from the apex down tl
Battery stre»t and another on the north side ending at what now is" the Km
of Bay street. It was the Sunday place of recreation for thousands of thi
early comers. They ascended, principally by way of Montgomery street, U
the summit, from which point they had an unobstructed view on a clear da]
of the Farallon Jslands, 28 miles away, the Golden gate, the counties oi
Marin, Contra Costa^ Alameda, Santa Clara and part of San Mateo. Almosi
every one who climbed the hill left a reminder of his visit by cutting his in
itials on the outer clapboard walls of the two story station. At the time ths
building was blown down many years ago the initials of more than 40,(XM
names had been cut into those boards, some as high as 15 feet from th«
ground.
LandinarkMovement • T^f People of today are trying to save wha
o ff/> ir ' ' \u25a0 a remains of the hill as a landmark. This, how
Begun 50 Years Ago ever? is not the first effort in that line Th ,
movement .dates back to 1851, when there was no building on the upper part
except the station, and when the sides were covered with wild flowers. In thi
early part of that year John George Stock, who came to this port in January ot
the steamer Tennessee, which three months later went ashore on Tagus
beach, Bolinas bay, and was the first of the steamers of the Panama line ti
go to wreck, was one of a party of Germans, Swiss and Frenchmen who oni
Sunday ascended the hilL There Stock made the suggestion that such i
beautiful hill ought to be preserved and beautified. His idea was that i!
should be laid out in terraces on four sides, with wide avenues, that houses
after the style of Swiss chalets should front on every terrace and that eacl
street should be planted with trees. He also suggested that the apex b»
set aside as a public park with an elegant observatory "in the center/ Thosi
who were with Stock approved of the idea, and after that there were severa
meetings with a view to acquiring the hill, but the proposition was not car
ried out because those who had money at that tirae could not be made tc
believe that San Francisco had a great future before it and that the" invest
ment would be a profitable one.. '.'»*/
In later years, that is, in the late fifties, the idea was again brought vi
and discussed, but by that time the invading blaster had destroyed thi
northern and eastern slopes and the project was abandoned. .
